WHEN SELECTING THE APPROPRIATE NEUTRALIZER, THE ENGINEER, CONTRACTOR, OR SERVICE TECHNICIAN SHOULD CONSIDER SEVERAL KEY FACTORS

BTU INPUT OF HEATING EQUIPMENT

HEATING DAYS

SYSTEM DESIGN

OPERATING HOURS

BTU Input of Heating Equipment

This is the fundamental factor to consider when sizing a neutralizer.  JJM™ products are rated according to BTU capacity and the resulting gallons per hour (GPH) of condensate produced by the appliance(s).  The guide below provides the estimated condensate produced based on an appliance’s efficiency and BTU input.  As efficiency and heating input capacity increases so does the condensate produced.

Equipment Efficiency GPH Condensate
90% .725 / Per 100,000 BTU Input
91% .733 / Per 100,000 BTU Input
92% .741 / Per 100,000 BTU Input
93% .750 / Per 100,000 BTU Input
94% .758 / Per 100,000 BTU Input
95% .766 / Per 100,000 BTU Input
96% .774 / Per 100,000 BTU Input
97% .782 / Per 100,000 BTU Input
98% .790 / Per 100,000 BTU Input
99% .798 / Per 100,000 BTU Input

 

Heating Days

The degree and variance of heat required could impact the volume of condensate produced.

System Design

The type of heating system, such as process, radiant, snow melt, or hydronic, should be considered as well.  Specific operating site conditions or configuration, such as location or height of the heating appliance, could determine the appropriate neutralizer solution.

Operating Hours

Operating hours of the heating equipment (often a consideration in commercial installations) could impact the volume of condensate produced.  Extreme peaks in condensate production can impact the soak time necessary for safe condensate neutralization.
